Alba – Chief Operations Officer

I joined Hanigan & Johnson’s team in 2006. What I love the most about H & J is the family atmosphere they have created in the office. I love seeing the excitement of our patients starting treatment and ending treatment! Those smiles are what bring joy to our team.

Hanigan and Johnson not only because they are great orthodontists, but they genuinely care about each patient that comes through our door.

In my free time I love spending time with family and friends. I am married with two children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law and four adorable grandchildren!
